Adelaide, AustraliaLive Auction
DAHL, Roald: Matilda. Illustrated by Quentin Blake.
London, Jonathan Cape, 1989 (sixth impression)/ 1988. Octavo; red papered boards lettered in gilt on the spine; several tiny indentations near the top corner of the front flyleaf; essentially a fine copy with the fine unclipped dustwrapper.
A uniquely provenanced copy, inscribed and signed by the author on the half-title in black felt-tipped pen (taking up the entire page): 'To Matilda's [sic] Bookshop with love Roald Dahl, 12/4/89'. Matilda Bookshop is an Adelaide Hills institution; its small paper label (with the then-current address of 220 Mt Barker Road, Aldgate) is mounted on the front pastedown, and its large and attractive bookmark is loosely inserted.
